Billboard 200: Lady Gaga’s ‘Chromatica’ Debuts At #1 With Historic Sales

Published: Sunday 7th Jun 2020 by Sam

Lady Gaga has made an almighty splash with new album ‘Chromatica.’

For, the high-octane LP has opened atop of the Billboard 200. 

Full story below…

The set rocketed in at #1, delivering final sales of 274,000 (205,000 of which are traditional units).

‘Chromatica’ is powered by singles ‘Rain On Me (ft. Ariana Grande)’ and ‘Stupid Love’ – which peaked at #1 and #5 on the Hot 100 respectively.

Its chart triumphant was also fuelled by a number of album bundle configurations – including tour tickets and merchandise.

‘Chromatica’ becomes Gaga’s sixth release to top the coveted count.

It also earns the honor of delivering the highest first week opening for a female in 2020.

The project’s Stateside success comes days after it premiered at #1 in the UK.

    Way to go! This is like Gaga Anti era. The era that everyone called a flop but she’s turning that right around and making everyone who doubts her eat their f’n words. I hope this album have the longevity that Anti had, because their are plenty stand out records that can be singles and perform well.

      Your comment was the one I was looking for cause, once again, you spoke it into existence chile lol 💯 You said her team was doing everything right very early on and people tried to come for you…I see it ALL…let me know when you want me to gather the receipts 😂 🧾

      It definitely would under a “normal” climate.

    • I+love+big+black+c** June 7, 2020

      Honestly, anti is Rihanna’s worst era. It didn’t even debuted #1 which only sold 15,896 copies on the first week. Shame! Please do not compare gaga with Rihanna. They aren’t on the same level. Gaga is a mega star and Rihanna is a superstar

    Now that’s what you call a comeback. Everybody thought she would flop but she said “flop where”

    • Clarks0o0ñ June 7, 2020

      It’s not a comeback
      Gaga has already peaked
      She’s not going to top born this way, or the fame.

      Her career is going to be stable, nothing ground breaking, just like pink.

      • Pat June 7, 2020

        She has a higher profile and credibility in acting. I see more in a Streisand lane if she keeps this up

  4. Clarks0o0ñ June 7, 2020

    Everybody expected her to go with the a star is born soundtrack sound (country, soft rock, blues ballad) but she went in the opposite direction.

    I didnt like rain on me when it was released but now I love it.
    It’s a grower just like stupid love.

    What’s the point of hating on gaga
    We grew up listening to her.
    We all did the choreography to telephone, bad romance, burn this way, etc in our living rooms and bedrooms.

    I’m happy me buying my chromatic thong was counted As a bundled toward her getting her number one. Looks like Gaga knows her audience

    • I+love+big+black+c** June 7, 2020

      U nasty! Those are wal mart quality thongs

  6. Keith June 7, 2020

    Congrats to Gaga on the PURE SALES. Im glad to see someone still moving units…

  7. Justme June 7, 2020

    Thats great with the traditional sales.. and they say people aren’t buying albums anymore.. yeah they aren’t buying artist they don’t rock with albums . Congratulations!!!

    • NT June 8, 2020

      She’s been selling merch bundles for months now…

  8. Peter Piper June 7, 2020

    “Historic sales”? What’s historic about this number? She bundled the album with tickets to a canceled tour. That’s called fraud

  9. POPS+Muva June 7, 2020

    legend TINGZ

    • Fierce June 7, 2020

      If i was a Gaga hater I would prolly be hiding my face by now.This woman keeps shaming her haters…. Gawrd! She knows how to make ppl like her.I wouldn’t be surprised if she comes out next with an RnB album.Trust me she will slay!

    It wasn’t powered by as much merchandise bundles as people think. Her album went on sale on a Friday and then she shut down her website Monday and it didn’t reopen until Saturday. Fans were unable to purchase merchandise or music through her website or third party partners since she chose to acknowledge and support black lives matter. Her success is truly commendable as the only way of purchasing her album was by going into a store like target or Walmart, purchasing it on line or from Spotify, Apple and other streaming companies. Not to mention many states are still in quarantine so, this is a huge achievement for Lady Gaga and a win for the record industry right now.

  11. the queen June 7, 2020

    good for her! she’s probably beyond happiness right now!
    although the album was the worst gaga album (in my opinion)
    still happy to see her succeed. she’s worked soo hard for it.
    her fans are puttin’ in work!! good job guys!

  12. I+love+big+black+c** June 7, 2020

    Mmm hmmm damn right. I know y”all hate to see this. Only flop, lazy Susan, haters gonna haterz, taytay all the mad b-I-t-c-h-e-s….

  13. stormiscomimg June 7, 2020

    Do we know the real sales (without tour and merch)? Next week it’s gonna fall huge.

  14. Alex June 7, 2020

    Definitely the first good album since The Fame Monster. Im really happy for her.

  15. Adele4life June 7, 2020

    So, I’m still tryna figure out what are those historical sales mentioned in the title.

  16. 1988 June 8, 2020

    Slay Queen. 🙂

    Congrats to Gaga. She’s back in her comfortable colored skin and better than ever! Can’t wait to see Chromatica Tour 2021!!

  19. Theman June 8, 2020

    These are great great sales for her. She even shut her store down for a few days. When you buy merchandise you buy the album with it. Or it comes with it. So it’s still a legit sale. Congratulations to her. She’s doing great. She’s a real artist.
